    Default Refusal to Tow

    My question involves towing laws for the State of: Virginia

    I was dispatched to tow a vehicle where the person requesting the tow did not have the keys, did not have proof of ownership, and did not have the registration. I refused to tow the vehicle because I didn't want to be liable for stealing a car. Is there a regulation that states that I have the right to refuse a tow if I think I would be liable.

    I very much doubt it; I don't know that any state has such a statute. You can look here.

    Outside of narrow contexts, such as requiring on-duty taxi drivers to take customers even if they are going into a 'bad neighborhood', public accommodations, or civil rights issues (discrimination based upon race, religion, ethnicity, etc.) I don't know of any reason a business cannot reject a potential customer they believe may be "up to no good".
